Josh Hill is headed to Canada. The former factory Yamaha rider has signed a deal with Cycle North, a Prince George, British Columbia-based dealership, to compete in the arenacross portion of the new Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Championship in Canada.
Since retiring from professional supercross and motocross in 2015, the 2008 Minneapolis 450SX winner has been involved in various projects, including riding the Alta electric bike at Red Bull Straight Rhythm and most recently competing in Snow BikeCross at 2018 X Games Aspen.
“I am very excited to have Josh on the program and it will be fun to have him back in Canada,” Cycle North team manager Kourtney Lloyd said. “I have always had a lot of respect for Josh and his career, and I look forward to working with him. The deal did come together quite quickly, but if anyone can jump on anything and be competitive, it’s Josh.”
Hill will ride a Honda CRF250R and CRF450R and compete in both Pro classes.
The next round of the series is scheduled for March 16-17 in Calgary, Alberta.
